Yoyo @ Classic French Film Festival
Yoyo
Pierre Etaix
France
1965, B&W, 96 min. Restoration, Blu-ray source

This elaborately conceived and brilliantly mounted comedy is Pierre Etaix's most beloved movie and his personal favorite. Beginning as a clever homage to silent film, complete with intertitles, "Yoyo" blossoms into a poignant family saga (in which Etaix plays both a father and his grown son) and a celebration of the circus Etaix adored. Chock-full of nimble sight gags and ingenious sound effects, "Yoyo" is very sweet, a little bit melancholy, and wholly imaginative. Also on the bill is "Le Cinematagraphe," a short in which a simple afternoon at the movies becomes a consumer-culture assault; the film is a section of Etaix's omnibus feature, "As Long As You're Healthy."

Intro/discussion by Diane Carson, professor emeritus of film at St. Louis Community College at Meramec and adjunct professor of film studies at Webster University
